Fernando Alonso

McLaren driver Fernando Alonso will miss the season-opening Australian Grand Prix on 15 March on medical advice. Doctors say Alonso is not injured following his crash in testing on 22 February, but advised him not to race in Melbourne because of the risk of suffering a second concussion. Suffering another concussion injury while a patient is still suffering from the first can have serious consequences, which can extend to prolonged coma or even death.
